Pavel means that if you do pass through (pRDM) and configure it as LVM it won't be possible to back it up using VAL as this isn't supported.

If the disk is a VMDK it's no issue.

Just to clarify what I meant: I actually thought that the host wasn't using the LV by itself but provided it to the VM's guest OS as a block device instead.

Checking to see if what's described in this thread may be our problem also.

- Cent OS 7 server, minimal install to bare metal
- VAL installed and full backup run, saved on LAN to NFS share
- Create VM on hypervisor
- Boot VM to recovery media
- Restore fails to boot after console shows progress bar finished
- Tabbing shows dracut-initqueue error/message
